As consumers of information in the post-truth era, it is sometimes inevitable to be deceived.By understanding how truth works, we can process information more intelligently and even achieve our goals by improving the way truth is told.Recommenders said >>> Guo Xiaoan (Deputy Dean, Professor, doctoral advisor, School of Journalism, Chongqing University) : In November 2016, Oxford Dictionaries named “post-truth” word of the Year in the English-speaking world. It refers to a situation in which objective facts have less influence in shaping public opinion and appeals to emotion and personal beliefs have more influence.Through the ferment and promotion of the hot word selection by Oxford Dictionary, “post-truth” has quickly become a hot topic.However, the understanding of “post-truth” should not be limited to the superficial phenomenon, but should rethink the relationship between emotion and reason, and reflect on its social root and human nature foundation.The book uses vivid stories to show how truth can be disassembled, distorted, obscured and assimilated by informants, while telling us that truth is rooted in competition and post-truth is rooted in human nature.In a complex society, no one can know all the facts. People just believe what they want to believe.In addition to reminding us to stay alert amid the noise, this book also reveals that in the future society, relationships, emotions and dignity will be more valuable than information, content and facts.Disclaimer: The copyright of this article belongs to the original author, if there is a source error or infringement of your legitimate rights and interests, you can contact us through email or wechat, we will deal with it in time.Email address: jpbl@jp.jiupainews.com;Wechat id: Jiupai6688 (Note to add and withdraw)
